Apple Activities for Preschoolers and Young Children

 Use your Mr. Potato Head pieces to make a Mr. Apple Head

 Paint a picture using apple slices
red apple slice-red paint, and same for green and yellow

Pick Apples from an apple tree-
Tree picture, pom poms for apples, tweezers, and plastic cups for the apple baskets. (I had a little basket for each color of apple.)

The Apple Star Story- The Little Red House- is so adorable! I used it in 1st and 2nd grade and my own children enjoy it for a bedtime story also.  I made visuals to go with the story- if you want a copy- leave a comment- and I'll post them for you.
Tomorrow I'll show you how to make little caramel apple pies!
So delish! We are making them again ...right now. :)
Happy Fall! Thanks for reading!

Great ideas, I would love the apple tree and the visuals to the story if they are available.

I would really like the visuals for the apple story. I will be teaching the Sunbeams about plants, fruits and vegetables in a few weeks and this would be perfect!
